Mrs. Lynch in Oingt, FranceI am teaching Science and Social Studies in grade 6.

I am excited to be teaching in School District 197!  After 20+ years of teaching in Minneapolis Public Schools and living in District 197 I am thrilled to be teaching in my own community.  This is my seventh year at Friendly Hills Middle School.

In Minneapolis I taught at the elementary, middle, and high school level.  I spent 12 years teaching middle school students and they are my favorite age to teach. 

I grew up in Mendota Heights and have lived in the area most of my life.  I went to the College of St. Benedict for my undergraduate degree in Education & French.  During my junior year in college I studied in Cannes, France.  I earned my Master's in Education degree at the University of Minnesota.

I am married and have 3 children.  I love spending time with my family, biking, playing tennis, traveling and enjoying the great outdoors during the 4 beautiful seasons in Minnesota.  My favorite book from childhood is Bridge to Terabithia, by Katherine Paterson.  Living GREEN is a passion of mine.  I lead the LIVE GREEN team at FHMS and we learn together with a goal of challenging and informing our FHMS community.
  I also love to ski and lead the Ski Club at FHMS.  We ski and snowboard at Afton Alps ski area.
